Elemental Skill Shuffling, Orbs and Mojos to be buffed, Battlenet Gift Card
Update: just made my simple elemental dps calc for android!
With maintenance still ongoing, here are some changes that will probably roll around in at some point:

WW is not imo a huge issue but the fact that lightning/cold/non-fire builds all perform poorly and aren’t really good compared with fire.
This is actually a topic I’ve been meaning to post on for a while, but hadn’t found a good opportunity yet. Now’s as good a time as any, I suppose!
When we did a pass on elemental damage types across skills during the Closed Beta for Reaper of Souls, the Barbarian class was one that received the most revision. While we arrived at a place much closer to where we were aiming, we think there’s room for some additional adjustments. I don’t have details on exact changes to share at this time, but it’s likely you’ll see some skills, and not just for the Barbarian, shift around their elemental type in a future patch.
Of course, we know that fire +damage% is too OP thus the stacking 😛
Another comment from the thread:
Can you just release a Lightning coat, Frozen Coat, and Poison Coat please? I think that would just about do it. Maybe some Elementals Fisterinos too? Or just nerf Cindercoat and make me quit this game. That works too.
Reminds me of Final Fantasy the gears
Finally some fixing for offhands, here orbs and mojos (I’m quite pleased with my mirrorball however)
First off, apologies for the delay on this follow-up and thank you very much for your patience. We’ve looked into your reports with QA and the dev thoroughly and here’s what happened:
The issue is actually two-fold:
Issue #1: Pre-patch 2.0.4, crafted Legendary Sources and Mojos had, on average, approximately 6% more damage than dropped Legendary Sources and Mojos.
Issue #2: Legendary Sources and Mojos (both crafted and dropped) are not currently being appropriately up-ranked to have more powerful base damage than Rare Sources and Mojos.
The first issue was resolved in patch 2.0.4. For reference, in patch 2.0.4, we implemented a bug fix to address an issue with crafted Legendary Crusader shields rolling with the wrong Block value. It turns out that the same bug that was causing crafted Legendary Crusader Shields to roll with Block values that were too low was also causing crafted Legendary Sources and Mojos to roll with Damage values that were too high. As a result, we when we fixed the issue with crafted Crusader shields we also fixed the issue with crafted Mojos and Sources. This fix had the secondary effect of reducing the maximum +Damage value on many existing crafted Sources and Mojos, bringing them in line with dropped Sources and Mojos.
While crafted Legendary Sources and Mojos are now using the correct values (both newly rolled and existing), this particular fix came a little sooner than we anticipated which means we didn’t get to post about it advance. We sincerely apologize for not providing messaging ahead of time on this topic as well as for any inconvenience or negative effect that lack of messaging may have had on your gameplay experience. This applies especially to anyone who had an existing item affected by the fix itself.
In the near future, we’d like to address the second issue, which is that Legendary Sources and Mojos (both dropped and crafted) are not being appropriately up-ranked to have more powerful base Damage than Rare ones. Since any change made to address this issue would affect client-side data, it’s not something we can hotfix; BUT, we are looking to implement a fix in an upcoming patch. We’re still working out the specific details (including an ETA), but suffice to say that crafted/dropped Legendary Sources and Mojos should be more powerful than they were even prior to patch 2.0.4 once issue #2 is resolved.
